I am a total garden novice, it's plant it and see what happens! So far I've been lucky everything seems fine and with the help of fellow gardeners on

I was given a tip to pick tomatoes just as they start to change colour then place in newspaper store in a cool dark place, what a rezult sweet ripe and delicious the added bonus is the plant can pour it's energy into producing more fruit it really works !☺

Well worth the effort. Fabulous! Nothing quite like the taste of home grown tomatoes. 👍

Tomatoes are plentiful here as well. They're just starting to ripen. We grew Early Girl, Roma and First Lady. Of course fresh is always great but we make pasta sauce, tomato relish, tomato juice, salsa, and canned tomatoes. We also freeze a few and dehydrate a lot of the Roma's.

Good tip. Like to try it myself but my tomatoes have been green on the plant now for four weeks with no sign of ripening! Those that have have been absolute rubbish. Really poor this year!

@awesomenbailey maybe try a differant variety next season but mine took about 5 weeks before they started changing colour so don't lose hope yet 👍💙
